The Garden Route

The Garden Route South Africa

Stretching 1000km from east to west across the southern tip of the African continent, the Garden Route is a beautiful range of environments which have proved to be very popular with visitors welcomed all year round. The path is well trodden and benefits from luxury lodges and established tours whether guided or as a self-drive option. However it is more than just a driving route and there is reward to be had for those who venture out of the car to hike within the spectacular Cango Caves or take to the water in search of whales.

Addo Elephant National Park is an ideal place to undertake a safari trek while Tsitsikamma National Park hosts a range of habitats including gorges, waterfalls and a rugged coastline, with a natural playground for canopy tours, and other outdoor adventures. Swap coast for mountains with ease, making the most of the coastal resorts of Mossel Bay, Knysna and Plettenberg Bay, and then heading inland to Table Mountain itself, from where you can view the Cape in all its glory.
